The Temple at the Center of the Universe recieves a letter from poor Melanie whose small planet has been swallowed whole by a whale. The temple decides to send five pilgrims to help Melanie out with her problem;
Loud Butter arrives at the whale via a space-subway, and proceeds to offer the whale the best churned butter in the universe if he spits up the planet. However, Loud Butter is far to loud, bursting the whale's eardrums who vows revenge.
Superstitious Princess seeing the mighty beast in pain rides up on flying turtle Gobber and Princess uses her Hourglass to conjure up curing cookies to heal the burst eardrums. The whale gets offended by the offered cookies because he is diabetic.
Unable to communicate in any way, Clumsy Crab, pinches the whale's tail, hoping he understands that this is because he ate Melanie's planet.
Inattentive Nature makes a salve to help heal the whale's eardrums, hopin to free Melanie. However Inattentive Nature mistakes the whale's mouth for its eardrum, and the whale decies to eat her and her salve.
Cosmic Penguin shows the whale to his house for tea and offers to teach the whale how to catch the largest space shrimp to be found, if the whale agrees to spit out Melanie's planet.
Concerned with this new state of affairs, Loud Butter uses his amazing ability of butter churning to churn a new eardrum for the whale, made of the finest space-butter available. And yet, Loud Butter, having just installed the new "butterdrum", screams out "This is the best eardrum ever!!!" and thus shatters the new butter-drum.
Superstitious Princess teleports inside Melanie's house inside the whale's belly and discovers that Melanie owns a black cat which causes him to be so scared that Surperstitious Princess teleports away taking the whale's wallet with its medic alert card with him.
Realizing pinching is not an effective way to communicate with a whale, Clumsy Crab pinches extremly hard, now attempting to make the whale scream out the girl and her planet.
Having remembered her extra herbs in her bag, Inattentive Nature gets some hot water from Melanie's house to make a tea that relaxes the whale, and lets her crawl out.
Realizing there exists far too many tea deprived people in the universe, Cosmic Penguin takes the tea from the hands of the whale, saying "There are people more deserving of tea than you in the universe," and offers the whale the opportunity to join the pilgrims on their journey and giving tea to the tea deprived.
Using the last, most secret art of Butter-Fu, Loud Butter actually feeds the whale incredibly delicious butter, causing the planet to slip out of the whale's mouth.
Appearing in a local diner Surperstitious Princess, disorientated knocks over a salt shaker, then he grins as he picks some up and tossing it over his shoulder for luck, he nods and uses his Princess powers to heal the whale's eardrums.
Clumsy Crab seeing the whale having trouble getting out of the house pinches the walls to make openings in them to let out the whale. But being Clumsy causes the whole house to collapse instead.
Loud Butter rebuilds the house out of butter and vows to make a "Butter World!"
Cosmic Penguin informs the temple of his new recruit, Cosmic Whale, for which they congratulate him with many fish and large space shrimp to share with Cosmic Whale.
Inattentive Nature gets a hot clay bath and a treehouse in the trees, where she can spend the rest of eternity.
Clumsy Crab, impresses a Vogon captain, who was passing by and saw how he destroyed the house, gives Clumsy Crab a job destroying old buildings.
Cosmic Whale when meeting Superstitious Princess falls in loves and marries her, and the two fly off into space in search of adventure.
